Similar to many main streets as you find in any city or town everywere, but here it is much less attractive, Still if you have nothing to do you can take a walk.

Ahhh....Via Etnea in Catania. Nice shopping and walking street where no cars are allowed. Whether you just want to go for a walk with your dog or shop or sit down and have a delicious espresso, Via Etnea has it all !

Via Etnea can be called as the main street in Catania. You can find many places to shop. It is generally crowded. In Christmas you can see Christmas market along the street.

Look for the large blue “P” signs which indicate a garage or a parking lot. Most are located off of side streets. I would suggest you use google maps to find one, which is what we did. We went off Corso Italia to locate... More
